Tuesday: It is election-day across the nation with some key elections for mayors and governors taking place.
We focus on the mayoral election race in New York City. If Bill DiBlasio wins there is the possibility of reversing the impact of 2 decades of GOP rule. Our guest is Steve London, Associate Professor of political science at Brooklyn College of the City University of NY, and the first Vice President and leg representative of the Professional Staff Congress.
And 2 dreamers join us in studio to discuss the push for immigration reform. Dulce Guerrero is an Undocumented youth organizer and the Secure Your Own Community trainer for the National Immigrant Youth Alliance (NIYA). And Luis Leon a member of the Dream 9, who spent two weeks in a federal detention facility following his re-entry into the United States this July.
And award winning poet hailed as a national treasure, Niki Giovanni on her new book “Chasing Utopia.”
Also, our weekly “Earth Minute”.
